Whenever there is an accident and the police respond, they may investigate to see if there is suspicion of drunk driving or impairment of any kind. Recently, a Tennessee car accident led police to suspect a man of drunk driving. DUI charges are currently pending against the driver who wrecked his vehicle on a Saturday night.
Before the accident occurred, a police officer responded to reports that a van ran a light and was driving along the road in an erratic manner. However, the police officer was unable to contact or pull over the vehicle in question before the accident occurred. The van ran off the roadway and then struck a culvert before overturning.
